As the curtain begins to descend on yet another hectic year in the world of hen party organising, here at GoHen, we decided to cast our eyes back across 2019 to see exactly where the party was at, how much money our hens were spending, what they’ve been up to and where our invite disappeared to!
The Cost of a Hen Do 2019
Whilst some hen weekends pull out all the stops for the bride’s big celebration, it doesn’t mean a hen do has to break the bank! For example, this year, a group of frugal hens spent just £14 each for a treasure hunt around London as part of the bride’s big send-off. So no matter how big or small the budget, you can still enjoy a fab weekend away with the girls
From all the positive feedback we received, it was evident that people had fantastic weekends irrespective of the financial costs.
Hen Do Costs for 2019:
- Average Spend Per Group – £1,920
- Average Individual Spend – £147
- Highest Group Spend – £9,472
- Lowest Group Spend – £150
According to the stats, the average spend per person for a hen do this year was £147 (excluding food and drinks).
One group spent £9,472 on a trip to Amsterdam (there were 34 of them in fairness) to give the bride a mammoth send-off. The price included accommodation for three nights, plus some fabulous hen activities as well as meals out.
